iPhone 14 Pro Max Listed on Geekbench with Little Better Scores than Apple A15 CPU
Last night, Apple introduced its all-new iPhone 14 lineup, powered by a more powerful CPU, i.e., Apple A16 Bionic. Like every year, it was expected that Apple’s new chipset would have many breakthroughs. However, we can now judge it as the CPU’s benchmark scores are revealed.
This afternoon, the iPhone 14 Pro Max (model number: iPhone 15,3) got listed on Geekbench 5 certification site, revealing Apple A16 CPU’s performance scores.
As mentioned in the benchmark, the CPU has scored 1,879 points on Single-Core and 4,664 points on Multi-Core. Compared with Apple A15 CPU, the single-core score is around 11% higher, while the multi-core score is about 4% higher.
The benchmark scores aren’t as good as expected. As per Apple’s official introduction, the A16 CPU has 33.3% higher performance than Apple A13 CPU (used in iPhone 11 lineup). However, it is worth mentioning that the Apple A16 comes with 20% reduced powered consumption, so these results are acceptable.
In terms of specifications, the Apple A16 Bionic is based on a 4nm manufacturing process and consists of six cores, of which two are performance cores (clocked @3.46GHz), and the other four are energy-efficient cores. In addition, the CPU also comes with a 5-core GPU.
If we look at some significant highlights of the Apple A16 CPU, the chipset now supports a new ISP and can capture images up to 48MP, which takes the iPhone’s photography skills to another level. Further, the frequency increase and power consumption reduction also denote that the new iPhone 14 lineup will perform better with lower battery consumption.
